Best Time To Travel To Pakistan
We recommend traveling to Pakistan at almost any time of the year, but depending on your interests, a certain time of year might be better than another. The best time to go hiking and spend time in the mountains in northern Pakistan is from May to October. This is the high season but it’s the all-around best time to visit the higher altitudes with no risk of snow closing passes *especially* on the Karakoram Highway (section of the old Silk Road) and a great time to visit the Kalash people in Kalash Valley.
From November to April, is a great time to visit the cities that are normally sweltering during the summer months (May to October), and a wonderful time to dig deep into the history that makes this country what it is today. If you can’t make it to see the Kalash people in the summer, consider visiting for the Kalash Winter Solstice, regardless of what you do in Pakistan, the country will surely leave you in awe.
- High Season: May to October
- Low Season: November to April
